Vertigo is caused by issues with the inner ear—such as Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (or BPPV), which develops as tiny calcium particles build up in the ear canals; Meniere’s disease, which is caused by fluid pressure in the ear; and Vestibular neuritis, a viral infection of the inner ear nerves. All of these cause the body to become unbalanced, resulting in an unbalanced feeling that the world spinning or tilted, and dizzy spells that come and go for about 20-seconds as your head changes positions.
Symptoms associated with vertigo include:
1. Distorted Balance
The primary symptom of vertigo is a feeling of spinning, you may feel tilted yourself or you may feel that the world is swaying, which causes an unbalanced sensation that you are being pulled in one direction.
